Uptown Downtown NYE Style

New Year's Eve is just a a few days away and we have been busy planning what to wear. While Megan prefers to lay low with friends, I always enjoy getting glammed up for a night of celebrating with close friends and loved ones.

Simple Uptown Downtown Dressing

The key to enjoying a night of festivites is a outfit that doesn't get in the way. Both Megan and I love the "high-low" approach of this look that is perfect for San Francisco. The mix of an edgy moto jacket with a feminine glittery lace midi dress strikes the right balance. What makes a look "high-low"? In this case opposites attract in unexpected ways. We paired an investment piece, a Theory Leather Jacket, with a lower priced lace dress from Topshop.

Accessorize with Strong Players

To add a little more luxe to the look I layered on strong accessories. An old statement necklace that mirrors the dress neckline adds the right amount of bling while standing up to the bold lines of the moto. My trusty gold toe pumps finish the look and keep the harmony of the Uptown Downtown vibe.

Want to make the look your own? Start with our simple equation: Feminine Dress + Structured Jacket (we love the moto) + Dance Worthy Pumps and add a dash of fun with accessories that you love.

Stay Stylish,



The Look:  Top Shop Metallic Midi Dress , Theory Navy Leather Jacket ( similar ) and Cole Haan Gold Toe Pumps ( similar ), Statement Gem Necklace ( alternate ), Kenneth Cole Bracelet ( alternative )
